2 stars This is a very weak album indeed - I rate it below at the very bottom of their cataloge, along with Big Generator.

It's well played and it sounds fine. However, the synths tend to drench the more interesting things that go on - especially the fine interplay between Howe, Squire and Alan White. That trio actually does very well here.

The main weakness of the album is lack of good material. We get lots of chords and riffs but very little melody and the pompous arrangements only highlight the emptiness. The lyrics - always a weak spot with Yes - are a laugh.

The individual voice of Jon is really missed but even that would not have saved this piece of cheap bombast.
